Dogs Don’t Like Leashes: Some South Carolina pols don’t like Nikki Haley’s reforms (like accountibility to voters)
At the RedState Gathering in August, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley ticked off a rapid-fire list of accomplishments that have occurred since she has taken office. Among those many accomplishments was the signing of a bill to make state legislators more accountable to their constituents through the use of roll-call votes. It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that, for some politicians, accountability to | Read More »
The Democrats Hope You Are an Idiot
The crop of Democrats up for election right now were last elected in 2008. For most of the actually vulnerable Democrats, this was the first time they ran for election. All elected Democrats are always at least secretly opposed to any measures that actually promote the national security of the United States of America, and given the mood of the country in 2008 they were | Read More »
The Inconvenient Truths of Evil and ISIS
A couple of weeks ago I wrote that we must eradicate the evil of ISIS by killing them. More and more Americans are coming to this realization, including our reluctant President, who has been dragged kicking and screaming into the real world. I deliberately used the word “evil” repeatedly in that diary – I wanted to make the point that ISIS is made up of | Read More »
From the Mail Bag
Thankfully the only one I’ve gotten. From Helen Markessinis comes this gem in the mail bag today: Your Briefings provide some comic relief periodically and an entertainment factor occasionally. However, when you start PREACHING to those of us that are Christian WE DO NOT NEED YOU TO EDUCATE US. You might want to consider a career as a preacher and have someone more capable of | Read More »
Greg Orman – The Cipher For Senate
Image Credit: Clancco.com Senator Pat Roberts leaves a lot to be desired. He represents McLean, VA quite efficiently. Unfortunately, he runs for office as a Senator from the Great State of Kansas. Although he was forthright and honest enough to announce to the world that he could be found in Kansas “anytime he had an opponent.” So if there were ever a candidate for the | Read More »
Gee, How Could President Obama Possibly Have Underestimated ISIS?
In case you missed it, on 60 Minutes Sunday, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus by claiming that Jim Clapper, et al dropped the ball in assessing the threat that ISIS posed. This is not the first time Obama has tried to blame his subordinates for providing him with faulty information about ISIS. When confronted with the manifest error of his comment | Read More »
The Real #WaronWomen: Iranian Woman Sentenced to Death for Killing Attempted Rapist
One of the most popular memes the Left has created over the past few years is the idea that conservatives have somehow declared a War on Women. It’s usually brought out when conservatives declare their opposition to infant slaughter on demand or refuse to support having their money buy other people’s birth control, among many other things. The feminists and their supporters are obsessed with how | Read More »

This is Unacceptable
Whether some conservatives like to admit it or not, President Barack H. Obama is the President of the United States and is therefore my President and the President of any American now reading this. For those of you who bristle at this, go see Hebrews 13:17; 1 Timothy 2:1-15; Romans 13:1; and 1 Peter 2:17. Keep in mind Paul and Peter were both about to | Read More »
Tech at Night: Nobody cares about privacy, not even criminals
I’m sure everyone’s tired of my saying it, but nobody cares about privacy. That’s why texting and Gmail are so popular, nobody does end-to-end encryption, Facebook is nearly ubiquitous, and nude photos keep getting broadcast everywhere.
This is why it’s so silly to keep trying to obstruct NSA going after the bad guys, when people’s non-existent privacy practices are broadcasting all of that data and metadata anyway. Let’s get serious.

As Senator Mark Udall tells it, he was just cruising around town back in the | Read More »
Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN)… did *not* vote to authorize air strikes against ISIS.
It doesn’t matter how badly Bruce Braley wants to be the next Senator from Iowa: if he is going to cast votes in Congress, he can do us all the elementary courtesy of paying attention to what he’s voting for.

Military officers resigning over policy differences is a bad idea
Last week it was reported that Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn was urging general/flag officers in the US Armed Forces to resign if they disagreed with Obama over policy: During a question-and-answer portion of the forum, a service member urged Lamborn to work with his congressional colleagues in both parties to “support the generals and the troops in this country despite the fact that there is | Read More »
